I think the in-hand feel will be better than I expect too. The video chat over 3G will really sell it for me though.
ATT is offering the subsidized price for contracts within 6mo of finish too. 199$ for 16GB is pretty hard to pass up.
For now. They need to talk with the "carriers"... more than one? Come on Steve!!! As soon as this hits Verizon, I'm pouncing on it. You've got it exactly right R, it's perfect. I see the Leica connection, and love it. I've always wanted some vintage Leica stuff, but have never been able to afford it. This is the next gen Leica, for sure. You've set the bar pretty high Mr. Ive.rkuchinsky wrote: Video chat is only wifi afaik.

hahah. I thought the same thing. I made sure to pass it along to all our engies just so they were aware. The antenna is brilliant.Cyberdemon wrote:Most impressive to me is the antenna system. I can't tell you how many fights I've had with RF engineers over "this can't move, this can't be any smaller, this must be this shape!" The fact that they've almost completely externalized all the antennas and done it in such a compact package is a kick in the ass to whiny engineers everywhere.

It might actually be nice to feel that step. I've got a ZuneHD and its got some recessed ridges on the sides and its actually quite nice to hold, gives your fingers something to grasp.Mr-914 wrote:bngi: I thought I was the only one that isn't sure about the glass and steel not being flush. Seems weird in photos, but phones are so small, perhaps it works in person.

I wonder what the reasons for not having the ceramic glass flush with the frame is. Is it because of the illusion of s3x from the sideview, of because of easier to fit that bumper thing without ruining the overall appearance? (sidenote: Wow, those bumper variations made me cry a little.. Way to ruin your phone).
